Ear's to You
Headphones are a convenient, useful accessory

By LARRY MYERS 1976 - nicht mehr By THOM PRINGLE

An important hi-fi accessory

HOW OFTEN HAVE you heard someone say "Use your head"? Well, if you are a hi-fi fan, that expression takes on an entirely different meaning. Because, you can "use your head" to enjoy high-fidelity sound without disturbing your family or the folks next door - or down the block if you really like your music loud.

Yes, headphones are an important hi-fi accessory. Even if you've invested hundreds of dollars in massive power amplifiers and exotic loudspeakers, you'll still find headphones useful.

Usage

Besides letting you listen to music without disturbing others, headphones have a number of other uses. For example, while recording you need to listen really closely to make sure you are getting the best possible performance from your tape machine.

Headphones are one way - and many would say the best way-of doing just that. Because the headphone transducers are but millimeters away from your ears, the sound isn't effected by room acoustics, extraneous noise or the speaker/listener relationship.

Headphones can be a trouble-shooting aid, too. If you are having problems with your equipment you can often isolate it to a particular component with 'phones. Suppose you find yourself with a lot of distortion or noise whenever you use your cassette deck.

Just plug the phones directly into the unit's jack. If the problem is with the deck you'll hear it. If not, you've at least eliminated one potential cause of the trouble.

Now that may not seem like a lot of help, but it will save you from hauling the wholesystem off to the repair shop. Headphones can help with other "bugs", too, but we don't have the space to go into all the details here. Suffice it to say they can help locate problems in your receiver's tuner, pre-amplifier and power-amplifier sections, and even in your speakers.
.

Earpiece design.

There are two basic approaches to earpiece design. The closed headphone has large liquid or foam-filled ear cushions that encircle the ear to provide a tight seal for good audio coupling, and up to 40 dB of isolation from the sounds around you.

The open or non-isolating headphone has cushions that rest lightly on the ears and permit the listenerto hearconversation and extraneous sound. The open type is lighter in weight and is, for some, more comfortable for long periods of wear. The choice between the two designs is largely a personal one.
.

Elements.

Headphones are basically miniaturized loudspeakers consisting of elements that are usually dynamic or electrostatic, in construction. The term 'dynamic' covers a broad variety of transducer designs where an electromagnet causes a thin metal or metalized diaphragm to vibrate at audio frequencies.

Electrostatic elements create sound waves by varying an electrostatic field that surrounds a thin plastic film. Unlike the dynamic type, electrostatics require an external power supply, though there are a few 'self-energizing' models as well as permanently energized 'electret' types that dispense with the power supply. Electrostatic designs are invariably more costly than the dynamic type, and offer the broader-than-average frequency response that is characteristic of this type of transducer.

There are some other transducer approaches on the market now that are fairly radical departures from the types just mentioned. One manufacturer is using a pizoelectric transducer. It consists of a plastic film with a very thin layer of aluminum on both sides. When a voltage is applied to the aluminum the plastic expands and contracts, moving the surrounding air.
.

The Heil Air-Motion transformer

Another approach uses the Heil Air-Motion transformer. This transducer uses a folded diaphragm that squeezes the air out as it moves. (Both the pizoelectric and the Heil approach are also used in some speakers.)

There are numerous two-way systems among the latest headphones, employing miniaturized woofers and tweeters, and at least one hybrid design with electrostatic tweeter and dynamic woofer.

Manufacturers of budget-priced dynamic headphones employ, as a rule, conventional designs and provide little information on their construction, while those producing premium-priced 'phones often provide elaborate diagrams and detailed specifications on their innovative designs.
.

Frequency response.

While most headphone specifications indicate frequency response, there is rarely an indication as to how much it varies from the ideal or 'flat' response (for example, ±3dB). So, while today's top quality stereophones cover the full audio spectrum of 20-20,000 Hz, the buyer will do well to compare the sound of several models and let his own ears judge the unit's performance.
.

Power rating.

The miniature speakers in stereo headphones usually have a power handling capacity measured in fractions of a watt. Often it is stated in terms of RMS voltage. The headphone jack on stereo receivers delivers the correct voltage to drive the 'phones with little danger of overload, but if the user makes his own headphone connections, say at the output terminals of an amplifier, care must be taken not to damage the headphones with excessive power.
.

Impedance.

Like loudspeakers, stereo headphones should be matched to the output impedance of the amplifier, usually 4-16 ohms. However, some preamplifiers and special components require headphones with 300, 600, or 10,000 ohm (10k ohm) ratings. Several manufacturers offer mid- and high-impedance versions of their headphones. Check the instruction manual of your equipment to determine what headphone impedance is recommended.
.

Controls.

Some models offer individual volume controls, built into each earpiece, so the sound level can be adjusted at a distance from the amplifier. There is a further trend toward building electronic circuitry into headphones, to control separation and ambiance, variable blending of left and right channels if desired, or to provide matrix circuitry for a pseudo-quadraphonic effect.
.

4-Channel.

The earpieces of 4-channel phones are slightly elongated and divided into front and rear sections, each containing individual speaker elements. Sometimes there are separate tweeters for front-rear separation and a single woofer for the less-directional bass frequencies. Quadraphonic phones usually feature a stereo/4-channel mode switch as well as volume and balance controls.
.

Conveniences.

Now virtually standard is the coiled cord, with hefty 3-conductor phone plug already attached (though some European makes employ DIN-type speaker plugs for headphone connections).

There are numerous accessories offered - control boxes, special amplifiers and adapters - to add to the convenience of using headphones. And there's room too for further innovation, such as the clothespin-like clip attached to the cord of one model, so the user can move about more freely without the cord tugging at the ears.

Although not available in the military market as yet, several European firms have shown special wireless headphones. A special transmitter sends infrared frequency signals through the air to sensors on the headphone. With this system you don't have to worry about wires at all!

While we are on the topic of conveniences, remember that unlike any other part of your hi-fi system, headphones are worn on your body. Now, that means you want them to fit comfortably, like you favorite shirt. It wouldn't be a bad idea to try on several different models before you buy.

After all, why spend your money on something you won't enjoy? That wouldn't be using your head.

SPECIAL NOTICE - THE PRICES .......

THE PRICES shown in Off Duty Shoppers for audio and photographic equipment have always been subject to change due to market conditions, but rarely as much as in today's lively marketplace. Not only are prices changing rapidly (happily, many prices are coming down), but there are many instances of products switching suddenly from club to exchange, or vice-versa.
Cause of the relative turmoil in audio/photo circles is the burgeoning competition between AAFES, Europe and the clubs. It pits the Exchange Service's enormous buying power and publicity clout against afast-moving, highly flexible local club operation that has dominated the audio/photo scene in Europe for several years.

By direct purchase in Japan, AAFES has lowered prices on many popular items. If the club's price for the item is higher, the management may withdraw it from sale. Or, the local importer who supplies the club may reduce his price in order to protect his livelihood. Sometimes the same item, with slightly altered faceplate and model designation, will appear in both exchanges and clubs at comparable prices. In a few instances, notably in the case of U.S.-made components and accessories, the identical product is available in both exchanges and clubs. If there is a difference in price it is usually temporary because both outlets are anxious to have your business and don't want to be undersold.

So, if our Shopper price list information changes faster than usual these days, it's all to the good. Thanks to competition, the customer is getting a better deal than ever.
